Good Times and Education Data

Even during the 1970s, people saw how stupid education data can be. This scene from Good Times rings true even today. It is a little funny how the guy behind the desk looks like Bill Gates.

Unfortunately, the education system is run by the guy behind the desk, people who know nothing about the children who are being educated. The only way they can discuss education is through numbers.

The best line of the scene: “how are you going to know where I’m at, if you haven’t been where I’ve been, understand where I’m coming from?”
